ANNOUNCER: It's Supernatural. Doctors tell a woman with aids that she only has a few hours to live. They tell her mother to pack her bags and take her home, but a miracle is in the making. See how the impossible is possible in the realm of the supernatural and see what happens when the president of Uganda dedicates his country to God. Do angels exist? Are healing miracles real? Is there life after death? Can people get super natural health from another dimension? Has the future have been written in advance? Sid Roth has spent 25 years researching the strange world of the supernatural. Join Sid on this edition of It's Supernatural.
SID ROTH: Hello, Sid Roth here with Dr. Andrew Nykoyoyo, and I'll tell you something, there is African believers in the Messiah understand the invisible world and literally have such a head start over people in the west understanding the invisible world. Andrew, you're from Uganda. And, I've seen a lot of films on Uganda that was such a devastated land. How bad was Aids in your country?
ANDREW NKOYOYO: Oh, Aids was so rampant to the point that you could find dead people on the streets. It was so bad that there was no hospital that people could go to because every hospital was full and you go to any place, any city, any village in every town, there was mourning everywhere.
SID ROTH : What percentage of the people did they anticipate would die from AIDS in your country?
ANDREW NKOYOYO: They said at least one third of the people by a fraction, they will die by 1997 from aids, but what else was going on in your country? There was in addition to Aids, there was just so much poverty. In addition to poverty was the civil war that went on for years from Idi Amin. We had another civil war that went on from 1980 to 1986. Uganda was in turmoil. It was a place of what the transformation video called a deep spiritual coma. There was no hope. There was no money. There was corruption and there was so much political instability, which didn't help for economic development at all.
SID ROTH: But there was a transformation in this nation. Uganda came out of what Andrew called a spiritual coma because people that knew God and knew how to get a hold of God's attention began to pray and they pray to such a point, that you told me that the president of Uganda went into the colosseum and dedicated the nation. Tell me about that.
ANDREW NKOYOYO: Absolutely, yes. In 1999 after the great move of God, because we had been fellowshipping and calling solemn assemblies, just moments of prayer around the country. It was more than just a prayer meeting or just say Christians gathering, but this was a gathering of all people, of all creeds, beliefs, from religious leaders to government officials coming together, recognizing that Uganda was in, was really going to hell and it was in a place of death. And so, we started praying and as we prayed that the government and the president began to recognize the changes that were coming, as a result, of all the prayers and all the move of God that was beginning to take place as a result of those prayers. And so, in 1999, Uganda was really dedicated to the Lord, officially by the president to the purposes of God for the next 1000 years.
SID ROTH : Now, when he appointed people in high government authority, I understand he appoints Christians. Absolutely. I mean, he's not. See, he's not secret sensitive. He's not concerned about what people think, he's out front.
ANDREW NKOYOYO: Absolutely. Because if we go back, the same where we have been going, we're going to end up with the same results. So now he sees the value and the outcome of the revival on what the Christian church has brought forth.
SID ROTH: What happened to Aids and your country. All those people that were supposed to die?
ANDREW NKOYOYO: Basically, as a result of the move of God, first of all, there was just so much healing. God began to heal people. And we did Crusades where people who had Aids were being healed and became, as part of our daily meetings where people are getting healed but the hand of God moved so powerfully on that nation. And, we began to preach abstinence from sex. We began to preach holiness and sanctification. And we began to preach the gospel with power and people, began to hear the gospel and repent. And as a result, the Aids cases started decreasing supernaturally because there was no way people are being healed supernaturally, even before they come to the meetings.
SID ROTH : Oh, your country is fabulous. I want you to see a clip of the president of Uganda and the first lady.
ANNOUNCER FROM CLIP : New Year's Eve, 1999, Uganda joined the rest of the world in celebrating the arrival of a new millennium. But there was a special character to the Ugandan celebration. "He's the invisible hand that has moved us along and shaped our destiny," Ten weeks earlier, First Lady Janet Museveni, had invited several church leaders to a meeting. So, when she came in, she told us she had a vision. As we enter the new millennium, can't we organize a time of Thanksgiving to God? For the Lord has brought us through this period. I mean she had requested that we dedicate the nation officially give back to God. So, in the presence of the president and first lady with covenant to the nation, to God for the next one thousand years, which included the signatures of the president and first lady was remarkably explicit, read like a passage out of the Old Testament. Then the king called together all the people from the least to the greatest. The king stood by the pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the Lord from beginning to end and it was just God.
SID ROTH : Hello, said Roth here with Dr Andrew when Andrew is from Uganda, a nation that has literally dedicated the entire nation to God. In fact, you told me, that your president appointed a, a new, a board member. And what was that called?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : The Ministry of Ethics and integrity.
SID ROTH : Could you picture the Ministry of Ethics and integrity being set up in the United States? I mean, the ambassador in charge of that. I mean, whatever country you're watching us right now, I think you've just been given a vision for your country. Don't look at the bad news. Look at what could be. Andrew, your mother was a pastor, was praying for you, but you wanted it to become a brain surgeon and make lots of money. But one moment changed your life, tell me about that.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Basically, when I was young, I wanted to be a brain surgeon, go to medical school, have all the nine yards and make lots of money in my life. But Jesus, one day after, two days after I got saved, Jesus appeared to me, not a vision, not a trance, but appeared, in front of me and began to speak with me and told me my call. And He said, “Andrew, I want you to go to the nations and preach the Gospel, and raise me an army of revivalists, people who would walk in the power and demonstrate the power of the Kingdom of God in the earth.”
SID ROTH : So you decided that you needed a skill to make some money. So, you went to a trade school. The only problem is you didn't have any money for the tuition. Tell me about that.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Yes, I said to myself and to my pastor, that everybody I read in the scriptures had something they did. They had a profession. So, if just in case it failed, I have something to fall back on so I went to a trade school. While in the trade school, there was this blind girl by the name of Lydia and I was praying that God would give me that commerce because I made a vow. Lord, you get me into that school and I'll preach the gospel. I'll start a fellowship. I was fasting and praying 40 days and 40 nights. And the Lord said to me, "Arise and receive this campus. I've given it to you." And I said, " Lord, how?" And he said, "The blind girl. Go and pray for her." So, I called the assembly and told everybody.
SID ROTH : "You called all these students together? Did you have the right to do that?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : I didn't have the right to do it, but I went and rang the bell, anyways. Called an assembly and everybody gathered together with the principals, the teachers and the students. And I told him that I want them to witness God performing miracle right before their eyes of healing, opening the eyes of blind.
SID ROTH : Now this wasn't a Christian college.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : No, this was not Christian. It is actually a private school, is not Christian at all. Most of the students were Muslims, pagans and Catholics of course.
SID ROTH : So, what did they think about your challenge?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : And as I spoke, they began to call me names and scream at me. And they said, "What if they don't open? We're going to stone you to death?" And I replied, "If they open, then you all give your life to the Lord." And they agreed to that. So, I just reached over Lydia's eyes and I laid my hands on her and the spirit of ...
SID ROTH : How, how afraid were you that it wouldn't happen? I mean, you're just a man.
ANDREW NKOYOYO: Absolutely.
SID ROTH : You told me this was life threatening. Was it really?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Yeah, it was life threatening because when people, when you come up with an idea like that and say, “ God is going to do this”, and you put God on it and people, they say that they will stone you to death, for sure. Here probably is not the case, but in Africa, people stone you to death and you'll die and there won't be even an investigation. So I was putting my life on the line for the Lord and I was shaking so bad. And as I reached out, the spirit of God spoke to me and said, “Whatever you say, that's what I will do.” So, whatever I say, that's what God did. I rebuked the spirit of blindness in Lydia and that exactly what God did. He opened those eyes for the first time, Lydia could see. There was also another miracle, Lydia had never been able to see.
SID ROTH : So, she was born blind? She was born blind. Do you know that's a messianic sign? That's a sign to prove that Jesus is the Messiah because the Talmud tells us that there are signs, the Messiah will do, and one is to open the eyes of someone that's never seen before.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Absolutely. And that she was born blind, so she had never seen anything. So, I took her through a series of exercises to show me if she really could see. And she told me the color of my shirt, my pants. How many fingers ……
SID ROTH : How did she know the color of your shirt, if she's never seen before?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Absolutely. And that brings us to the second miracle because God gave her the ability to recognize and understand colors before she had never seen anything.
SID ROTH : So what reaction did the other students have?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : The students that are looking forward to stoning me to death went down on their knees. And I led the entire campus to the Lord. Remember, before, the principle had given me that week to pay my tuition. Otherwise, I'll be cast out of school. Well, he came to me and said, "Come to my office," And he said, “The Lord spoke to me to pay for your tuition, your books, and everything you'll need until you graduate.” That's why I said that the Lord Jesus sent me to school.
SID ROTH : Andrew, when you saw that, that blind woman got her sight back. I know where the effect on everyone that watched. What effect did it have on you?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Oh boy. My faith was elevated.
SID ROTH : You know this book, “Working the Works of God.” That's what happened to me when I read it. My faith, God elevated.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : It elevates faith. It charges you up. It shows you who you are and what Jesus says you can do.
SID ROTH : Well. You know what's so amazing to me, Andrew, is when Andrew prayed for a woman with Aids that just literally had minutes or hours to live, how much did she weigh?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : About 20 to 20 pounds in a great miracle occurred and a great miracle is going to occur in your life because the African anointing is going to come right through your screen. Don’t go away. We'll be right back after this word.
ANNOUNCER : We'll be right back to It's Supernatural was God's purpose from the beginning for all nations to become one in Yeshua, Messiah Jesus, to break down the Middle Wall of separation between Jew and Gentile. When Jewish spiritual DNA merges with the new covenant Christian DNA, there will be what Paul called life from the dead. That's why Sid Roth's website is loaded with cutting edge articles and teaching about the one new man log onto sidroth.org. Today we now return to It's Supernatural.
SID ROTH : Hello, it’s Sid Roth, here with Dr. Andrew Nykoyoyo, and there is something about Africans and the way they understand the invisible world before becoming believers in the Messiah. Then once Andrew, you become a believer in the Messiah. It all. When you, when you read the New Testament, it makes more sense, and after you saw the results of this blind woman getting her sight back, your faith must have soared.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Oh boy. I was a changed man. My life went from just thinking that God could use me, to knowing that God can use me. He wants to use me on. He wants to heal people. He wants to set people free and using ordinary person who will just believe in him.
SID ROTH : Now you went out to hospitals to, because you just wanted to pray for people to see results, but, you, you really bit off a little more than you could chew when you went to this one hospital in the Aids ward. Tell me what you saw with this woman.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Well, I walk into the Aids ward in this Catholic hospital and there's just so many people with aids on. But there's this particular lady, she must have weighed about 20 pounds. That morning, the doctors told the mother to take her home because there was nothing else they could do for her. She's the only daughter of this woman. Her lips were dripping blood. She had sores. She had boils, tumors under her armpits. I mean, I didn't even want to spend much time in this ward because the stench was so bad. I thought I was going to contact contract, uh, an airborne disease. But the Lord said to me, “Minister to her.”
SID ROTH : How long did she have to live?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : They gave her hours to live that morning and when I walked in, they were packing her bags because they told her to go home because she had only a few hours, uh, to live.
SID ROTH : Why did they want her to go home if she only had a few hours?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : So that they can make room for another person because it'll cost them more money to transport a dead body because there was no hope, nothing else they could do.
SID ROTH : What did you feel when you were going to lay hands on her? : As far as whether she'd be healed or not? I mean, that one was as close to death as she could come.
ANDREW NKOYOYO. Absolutely. I looked at her, I began to shake, but at the same time I know that I don't heal people. The Lord Jesus heals and his power heals. All I have to do, is do what He says that I can do. And then I let Him do what I cannot do, but He can do, is heal the sick.
SID ROTH : So, what happened?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : So, I looked at her, I began to share the gospel with her, and she was in agreement. For eight months, she could not sit, she could not eat, she had no strength, so she couldn't even move her body. So, she just slowly said, agreed, nodding a little bit. And uh, I, I laid hands on her. I said, “I'm going to pray and Jesus is going to hear you because He’s still the same yesterday, today and forever. And he still heals.” So, I laid hands on her though I didn't want to because she had lost her hair. She had boils all everywhere. But I closed my eyes and I prayed a prayer of faith in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And by the time I said, “Amen,” the boils, the tumors in her armpits, the blood that was dripping, had stopped. Her skin had dried immediately.
SID ROTH : That can't happen in the natural. It can't be what the doctors called remission.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Absolutely. And, uh, I began, I asked her what happened, what did you feel as I laid hands on you? And she said,” I felt like as if a hot coal was poured on me from my head to toe and it went through me.” I have from that that was the power of God and for the first time in eight months I took her. I told her, I'm going to take you by the hand. I took her by the hand, and she was able, to sit on the bed for the first time in eight months. She was able, to tell me, talk and tell me what she felt and just the whole experience and tell me all about it.
SID ROTH : and what did the doctors and the rest of the staff and the patients have to say about that.?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Now, as I was talking to her and taking that through all these hearing her testimony, the doctors, the nurses and even the fellow patients began to gather around because this was a forgotten case. She was a gone case and she supposed to be dead in a few minutes, and now she's talking and sitting and drinking, and they all gathered around and I say, I asked them, “Do you want to receive the Lord Jesus because He can do the same thing?” They all accepted the Lord Jesus in that very hospital, and I prayed for them and even minister to other people, other people while I was at it.
SID ROTH : You know what Andrew, while you were talking an angel of healing has invaded the studio, and I can tell you is a fact, there are people that have been healed with back problems. If you'll bend over, you do not have any pain. They're someone with a left leg problem, you have been healed. There is someone with a hip problem, you have been healed. Andrew, will you look into the camera and will you pray for people right now? Because that African anointing of the Messiah, Yeshua is about ready to be released.
ANDREW NKOYOYO : Yes. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray for every sick body, every sickness, every disease, every spirit of infirmity, every spirit of disease. I rebuke you now in the name of the Yeshua, right now to be gone and I release the healing power of God to touch your body, where or whatever it is in your body, let it be cancer, tumors, AIDS, arthritis, whatever the case may be right now, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I release healing into your body and and I ask you to receive this healing by faith because it is yours right now. There it is in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
SID ROTH : I can tell you, Andrew, that I know many people were just healed, but I also know that when I read your book “Working the works of God,” my faith level just moved. Why did you write this book?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : I wrote this book because God spoke to me that he wants to raise an army of radical Christians, radical believers who do the things that Jesus said that we'll do and who will be the people that Jesus said that would be really walking in the power of God. This is for average people, but we're all anointed and they are anointed and God wants to use them and manifest his power in them and through them. That's why I wrote the book.
SID ROTH : God brought you from Uganda to America. How come I asked this?
ANDREW NKOYOYO : I asked myself the same question and ask the Lord that same question and he said to me,” Andrew, America needs you,” and I said, “why?” “Because you come from a different culture. You bring a different perspective, but because now is the time for America.” That's what He said, “because there is a coming move of God and I want you to be part of raising an army of those radical revivalists that are going to take the power of God into the ends of the earth, but especially to the American church, to awaken the church, to start them up for the coming move of God to be ready because before the marvel will come, the church has to be ready to receive it.
SID ROTH : That's you. Are you ready? Are you ready to be used by God? We heard about a woman that her body was so eaten up by this horrible disease of AIDS. She just had minutes to live and the power of God came on her. How would you like to be used that way? Do you know, God sees something special about you? You may be in a pity party right now. You may think that you've just messed up so bad, but you're in perfect shape, right now to become the person of destiny that God created you to be. Do that first step. You may not have that Aids on the outside, but you have aids on the inside. It's called sin and God is a holy loving God that loves you, but your sins have separated you from your God. So, if you will call out to God not in some religious prayer, but a child talking to their father, who's a good father, who is not going to disappoint and say, “God, forgive me in Jesus' name for all the sins I've ever committed. Come and live inside of me, become my Lord.” If you will do that, God, I promise you, will draw so close to you, and you'll have a purpose to live and you will fulfill a destiny that before you were conceived in your mother's Womb, God knew you and called you, but now is the moment. For some of you, it's your last chance and you have so much to look forward to. Go for God and He has already gone for you. He loves you. He really does.
